Throw roses and chocolates out the window. This year, celebrate Valentine's in a way that truly represents you and your partner. Ignore the marketing hype and pressure around planning the most romantic night ever, and plan an evening that you'll both enjoy—even if it's not a traditional greeting-card-inspired Valentine's date. 


Even if you're single this February 14th, who says you can't join in the celebration? We're throwing the rule book out the window and letting you reclaim this day of love. Check out these three unconventional ways to spend your Valentine's Day.


A Very KINKI Valentine's Day Party

Are you up for a fun night out? After a very successful, sold-out NYE party, the Kinki Lounge & Kitchen returns with the second installment of their "Very Kinky" party series. Bring your pals, your gals, your partner, or just yourself to downtown Ottawa for an evening filled with sexy lighting, roving burlesque performances, and music from Ottawa's top DJs.

Expect sophisticated simplicity and an ambiance that will make you want to mingle and meet new people. This just might be your winning ticket for true love—don't miss out.


A Contemporary Valentine's Celebration
